Why did not Christians of Muhammad’s time produce their books, real or forged, from which passages were supposedly copied in the Quran, thus dealing a severe blow to Islam?

May 7, 2009

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908, the Promised Messiah, the Second Comings says:

The fact is that only Divine revelation has the authority to
prove the truth or falsity of past scriptures. Any account
confirmed by Divine revelation has to be true, even
though some ignorant ones declare it otherwise. Similarly,
the account which Divine revelation rejects, has to be
false, even though some people declare it to be true.

To think that the Holy Quran is made up of such wellknown
accounts, tales, books or gospels, is the height of
ignorance and something to be ashamed of. Is there anything
wrong with a book of God being in agreement with
some past accounts? Many truths of the Vedas, which
were not even known at the time, are to be found in the
Holy Quran, but can we conclude from this that the Holy
Prophet(sa) had studied the Vedas?

The Gospels that have now become available—thanks to the
printing press— were not known to anyone in Arabia,
and the people of
that land were simply unlettered. If there happened to be
an odd Christian among them, he was not likely to know
much about his own religion.10* It is therefore despicable
to think that the Holy Prophet (sa) plagiarized from these
books. The Holy Prophet (sa) was unlettered and could not
even read Arabic, let alone Greek or Hebrew.

It is now
upon our opponents to produce any manuscript of that
time from which these accounts are supposed to have
been taken. If the Holy Quran contained material copied
from other sources, the Christians of Arabia, who were
bitter enemies of Islam, would at once have cried out that
it has been taken from their own accounts.

Remember, the Holy Quran *11* is the only scripture in the
world that proclaims itself to be a miracle. It forcefully asserts
that its prophecies and narratives are from the realm
of the unseen, it contains prophecies about the future down
to the Last Day, and that it is a miracle in respect of its eloquence
and beauty of expression.

It would have been easy
for the Christians of that time to produce the books from
which passages were supposedly copied in the Holy Quran,
thus dealing a severe blow to Islam. But now they only cry
over spilled milk. It is unthinkable that the Christians of
Arabia would have kept quiet despite being in possession
of books—whether genuine or forged—from which they
suspected the Holy Quran of having copied certain material.
Thus there can be no doubt that the Holy Quran is
totally composed of the revealed word of God, and that this
revelation was a great miracle, for, no one could produce
anything like it.

Foot Notes from the Author :

9 Christianity does not only allow the use of falsehood and imputation in
support of the faith, but considers this practice to be worthy of divine
reward. See the teachings of Saint Paul. [Author]
10 Reverend Pfander has admitted in his book, Mizan-ul-Haq, that the
Christians of Arabia were also like savages and were quite ignorant. [Author]
11 The Holy Quran claimed that it was a unique and miraculous book, and
it challenged anyone who considered it to be the word of man to come
forward and prove it, but no opponent took up the challenge. The Gospels,
on the other hand, were declared plagiarized by the Jews at that very time
[when they were written], nor have they ever claimed that man cannot
produce anything like them. Therefore, the Gospels may be suspected of
having been plagiarized, but not the Holy Quran, for it claims that no man
can ever produce such a book and the silence of the opponents has proved
the truth of this claim. [Author]

Subject: Jesus’ Return

 

Hi! Dore

 

You are a claimant of being Jesus or Christ and I respect you and all such claimants.

There are many claimant of this office. The Jews are waiting for the Christ/Moshiach for the last three thousand years or so and they say he is yet to come, a long wait indeed!

They have a long list of about twenty such claimants but they believe they were all untrue claimants as they could not fullfil their aspirations so they have declared them untrue in retrospect.

 

The Christians are also waiting for the Second Advent or return of Jesus (whom they consider as God)

 

The Muslims believe that Jesus was only a true prophet of God who will descend from the sky a second time as a Muslim and he will destroy and kill all non-believers of the world, an extremist view.

So, simply by your saying that you are true Jesus and others are false will not solve the problem for the peoples.

 

Then there are other nations waiting of the return of heir religious leaders i.e. Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Zoroastrians etc; waiting for their religious leaders to return and reform the world which is in a dilemma and seeking the right path.

 

The question is so important for the world.

 

If you are a busy person, kindly send me, if possible, e-mail addresses of ten such persons of a firm faith who believe that you are Jesus so that I can discuss this issue with them and arrive at an impartial criteria from the scriptures of all these nations so that we believe the true Jesus/Christ or reformer of the world religions.

Well, if that is true, then you don’t know God, nor does idolatry or blasphemy against me bother you in the least, for there is only ONE true Son of the Father.

The Jews have a long history of rebelling and sinning against God, and because of their disobedience and disrespect, selfish desires for deliverance from Roman oppression, instead of deliverance from sins, they denied my advent the first time I came to the earth. That being said, they are still awaiting their own concept of Messiah, instead of seeking and pleasing God to have the truth revealed to them. Those who have denied me, the first time I came to the earth, are condemned already and thus, their expectations will remain unfulfilled. God doesn’t bow to the will and desires of men, but has created a plan to redeem mankind from their sins, and the Jews have denied this plan of salvation.

No, the Muslims believe that Mohammed was the only true prophet of God and that I was merely a holy man sent from God. They do not recognize my purpose or plan. They have no aspirations of my return, but believe that all should follow the words of Mohammed and all who refuse are unbelievers and should be destroyed.

So, simply by your saying that you are true Jesus and others are false will not solve the problem for the peoples.

 

Of course, just “saying” that I am the only begotten Son of the Father would not “solve” the problems for all peoples, but then again, I never said I would. But as I stated before, evidence for who I am is found in obedience to every word that I spoke in the gospels, as well as fulfilling the prophecies of my second advent, which I have completely fulfilled the first and have fulfilled numerous prophecies of the second advent, with the rest to be fulfilled shortly. I prophesied in my first coming that only a few would be saved and most would reject and deny me and be condemned, so all of those who do not believe in me, will continue to have problems until they are destroyed, because they are condemned, as stated in the prophecies for these end times.

Actually, the concept of a return of a “Messiah” for these other false religions is a modern concept, just recently added to their theologies, attempting to be a part of this great event. Buddhists don’t even believe in God, and Hindus believe in numerous gods, so which one would they expect to return?

If you are a busy person, kindly send me, if possible, e-mail addresses of ten such persons of a firm faith who believe that you are Jesus so that I can discuss this issue with them and arrive at an impartial criteria from the scriptures of all these nations so that we believe the true Jesus/Christ or reformer of the world religions.

 

Well, clearly you are under some misconception that I must prove myself to you and the world. You also are under some false impression that I have returned for ALL peoples in all religions, for which the scriptures clearly state that I am not. If you knew the second coming prophecies, you would know that I am not here to prove myself to mankind, nor here to reform any other religion,  but here to JUDGE all mankind according to their faith in me and their obedience to my words from the first advent,  thus they must prove themselves to me, if they want redemption and salvation.  So, you like the rest, who do not yet believe in me, will then have to wait until I rise to be revealed to the world. Besides, there is NO impartial criteria to come to faith in me, there is the truth, righteousness, wisdom, prophecies, knowledge and scriptures that state clearly of my objective, purpose and events as planned from the beginning.  I am NOT here to satisfy mankind and their desires, but gather together those who have prepared for my return and whom truly serve God.
